🚨 BREAKING: Mesut Ozil statement after being omitted from Arsenal squad

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has released a statement after being omitted from Arsenal's first-team duties.

The German was not included in the club's 25-man Premier League team this coming after being omitted from the Europa League team and according to the player, he will still be giving his all despite the setbacks.

In a statement, Ozil noted: “This is a difficult message to write to the Arsenal fans that I’ve played for over the past few years. I’m really deeply disappointed by the fact that I have not been registered for the Premier League season for the time being. Upon signing my new contract in 2018, I pledged my loyalty and allegiance to the club that I love, Arsenal, and it saddens me that this has not been reciprocated.

"As I have just found out, loyalty is hard to come by nowadays. I’ve always tried to remain positive from week to week that there’s maybe a chance to get back in the squad soon again. That’s why I kept silent so far.

“Before the coronavirus break, I was really happy with the development under our new coach Mikel Arteta-we’ve been on a positive way and I would say my performances were on a really good level. But then things changed, again, and I was no longer allowed to play football for Arsenal.

“What else can I say? London still feels like home, I still have many good friends in this team, and I still feel a strong connection with the fans for this club. No matter what, I will keep fighting for my chance and not let my 8th season at Arsenal end like this. I can promise you that this hard decision won’t change anything in my Mindset-I will continue to train as best as I can wherever possible use my voice against humanity and for justice.
